Grandmas are the best.
They bake cookies for you. They take you to the park. They babysit you. They give you candy. They sew you nice sweaters. They try to smuggle you out of the country so you can avoid doing prison time.
You know, just the best.
Well, at least one Florida grandma tried to do that last one, when she attempted to smuggle her grandson who had a felony warrant out for his arrest by stuffing him into the trunk of her car.
It was a fool-proof plan too, until she was seen talking to someone in the backseat. Problem was, no one was in the backseat.
According to Gulf Breeze Police, 74-year-old Kay Brady, had concocted a plan with her grandson, Nicolas Logan, 28, to get him out of dodge by stuffing him into the trunk of her car, and driving her to a boat in Fort Walton Beach.
Logan crawled into the trunk of Brady's Honda on Tuesday afternoon, and the two were off.
But, cops received a tip about the great escape, and were able to locate the Honda on the road.
Police say Brady appeared to be speaking with someone in the backseat of the car as she was driving. When they noticed she was talking with no one, they knew something was up.
Brady also happened to be speeding at the time, which didn't help matters.
The cops puller her over, and asked her if anyone was in the trunk. Brady told them that there wasn't.
The officers then asked for permission to search the trunk. She did. And there they found Logan, crawled up inside and wrapped in a blanket.
Awwwwwwwwwww grandmas! Even when they're illegally aiding to run away from the cops, they make sure ya don't catch cold.
Police removed Logan from the trunk and cuffed him. When they tried to detain Brady, she tried to shut the driver door on them.
An officer was able to grab her.
She allegedly yelled at the arresting officer "Who the hell do you think you are?" as he grabbed her arm.
Brady was taken to Santa Rosa County Jail, and charged with public order crimes and aiding prisoner escape. She was released Tuesday night on a $8,500 bond.
Logan was transported to Escambia County Jail, and is being held without bond on probation violation charges.
Though Brady obviously loves her grandson, Logan is actually no stranger to breaking the law, including being charged with battery and several probation violations dating back to 2009.
